Hi everyone, first post. I'd like to know how to remove and replace the brick sills on my home. About seven because they are broken and chipped. Want to replace with what looks like concrete or stone sills very common. My problem is i've never done anything like this so any help would be appreciated.

thanks Gary
:(

Have the same scenario. Item 139 on the to do list.:laughing:
It was stylish but poor planning 35 years ago. Apparently it eventually allows moisture to penetrate the morter, then freeze and pop the bricks.
A neighbour had his sills replaced this spring with slabs and it looks great. His brick guy measured and ordered the slabs then did the remove and replace all in the same day. I might use my diamond grinder but I think his guy just chiseled them out and remortered

Do you have a photo? What replacement material did you use?
